“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

We, my husband, 2 year old son and I, recently had a three night stay here at Clearwater and loved every moment of it! The rooms and grounds are kept spotless (which in these parts can be hard to find), our son loved the freedom we were able to give him to run free in the large enclosed yard. Our hosts, Simon and Pushpa, were nothing less than terrific.....can't say enough about how thoughtful, how accommodating and how caring these two are. Instead of feeling as though you're checking into a guesthouse it feels more like your staying with old time friends. Thanks again for the wonderful stay!

You could not ask for a better place to stay in Sihanoukville or for better hosts. Simon and Pushpa make you feel like part of the family and cater to your every need. The guest house is away from the noise of the beach but only a 5 minute walk. Perfect location for a good nights sleep. Breakfast at your leisure in the garden surrounded by beautiful bougainvilleas. You could not ask for better. Our place to stay when in Sihanoukville as well as all our friends. Will be back soon.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Clearwater for 3 nights at the beginning of March this year. From the initial email correspondence to the time we left, Simon and Pushpa made us feel welcome and took great care to ensure that we were happy with our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was tasty and we felt completely safe there.
We chose the location as we had heard that independence beach was quiet, and when we were there it seemed it was mostly frequented by locals rather than tourists.
Simon and Pushpa also recommended we go on a boat trip to Koh Rong Sanloem, which was a lot of fun! As people have mentioned - the tuktuk service is great value for money, and the guys driving them are honest and reliable.
It is evident that Simon and Pushpa have put a lot of effort into making Clearwater a beautiful home away from home for their guests, and the fact they do it all on their own makes it even more impressive!

The last week of our 3 weeks in Cambodia we decided to book on this guesthouse, after we saw all the good reviews.
And after staying on Serendipity beach we looked forward to a calm place with a clean beach.
It really felt like home directly! Pushpa and Simon who's running the Guesthouse on their own made us feel welcome and cared from first moment.
They had so many good advices to tell, helped us with booking boat trip and tuk tuk rides any time, anywhere.
The beach is just 5-10 min walk away. Clean and not crowded.
I just could go on and on, but this time with them and the other nice guests made our trip the best, and made it really hard and sad to get home to Sweden.
We will come back for sure!

Me and my girlfriend was looking for a guesthouse the last week in Cambodia and found this amazing place just a little bit from the centrum in Sihanoukville, it was like coming home! Simon and Pushpa welcomed us with open arms and maked our last week the best week. Room 4 was great, ac, large bed, tv, fridge, 2 bottle of water everyday and it was very clean, it had everything you need! Breakfast was great and their service is outstanding. When we get back to Cambodia, this is the place we are going to stay! /Chris and Kija

My girlfriend and I originally booked four nights at Clearwater and ended up extending our stay for an extra two nights due to Pushpa and Simon's amazing hospitality. Clearwater is a great guest house just a little out of town and 5-10 minute walk to Independence Beach, which is debatably the best beach in Sihanoukville. This place is perfect for people who are wanting to escape the noise of town, and Simon and Pushpa will happily arrange a tuk-tuk into town for you. Tuk-tuks cost only $6 return trip, and the drivers they use are reputable and will ensure you are picked up from town at whatever time you choose. The rooms at Clearwater are very clean and the included breakfast is tasty. Simon and Pushpa do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this place to others!
